Optimise Your Drupal Website For Mobiles
Looks great on mobiles. Gets you higher on Google
In 2015, Google have made some big changes to the way that websites are ranked on their search engines to ensure that people using their services find websites that are easy to view and use on desktops, laptops, tablets and mobiles. That is why they have released the Google Mobile Friendly update. The basics behind this update are to make sure that your website is clear and easy to use for devices with smaller screens as well as larger ones. So why should you update?
- 94%* of people who use a smartphone, use it for local web searches
- Users who have to 'pinch' their screens can become frustrated
- Mobile friendly sites will load faster for the visitor to your site
- 77%* of mobile searches are made at home
- Being Mobile Friendly means your website is listed higher on Google

Is having a Mobile Friendly website right for you?
The simple answer is YES, it definitely is for you. As well as making it easier for your potential customers and visitors to use your site, enhance their experience and keep them active on your site for longer (that's worth it in itself, right?), making your website Google Mobile Friendly will mean that your site will be listed higher on Google for searches made on a mobile device. For instance, if someone wants to find a 'car hire company in Birmingham', and uses their mobile device to search for it (don't forget, 94% are done this way), if your website is Mobile Friendly, you have a MUCH better chance of being listed right at the top for that search, which means more clients and customers.
- More traffic and visitors to your site!
- Higher on Google!
- Happier visitors to your site, more likely to buy!
